This is a special presentation episode of the Indie Reads Aloud Podcast.
We’re talking about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) that comes around every November. The concept is easy to understand; Writers are challenged to write the first draft of a novel – 50,000 words – in just 30 days. Traditional writers begin a new project, a novel, usually. Rebel writers can work on whatever type of project they like… non-fiction, poetry, memoir, or they can add words to a project already in progress. But the main goal remains the same… 50,000 words.
In this episode, we talk with veteran and new NaNoWriMos, get their perspectives on the program, tips, tricks, and how to keep the momentum going throughout the month and WIN! Some writers may feel overwhelmed by such a challenge, but after listening in on our conversation, I think everyone will discover just how fun and possible it really is to write a first draft of a book in a month!
The authors who joined us in this episode are Marianne Wieland, SW Raine, RL Fink, Michael Beardslee, Shani Smith, Kristian Bullen, and Jacob Bullen.
